Poverty - Poem by Nicki Faith

This I wonder while I lay in bed,
Why it is we all can't be fed
Poverty stricking our sisters and brothers
Making life struggle for fathers and mothers
If the world comes together as one
Poverty will be done
If the the world came together universal
This problem would not be controversal
Working united will make poverty eradicate
By 2015 we will be exasperated
We cannot be intimidated
If by 2015 we want poverty eliminated
Deplorable living conditions is limited acess to education
Struggling to strive
Being unable to thrive
Suffering from hunger and thirst
Yet all hopes not lost
For we can extend a helping hand
To the needy in a foreign land

    I've read some of your other poems and you go from being so hurt to caring so much for others, keep giving those emotions a voice. (Report) Reply

    In the Christian Bible Jesus said the poor will always be with us. And Jesus is God! (Report) Reply
